"Letter to Bijou" (2013), a 30 min musical short about a boy whose dad doesn't support his art

Winner of the Independent Spirit Award of the 2011 Boston Independent Film Festival.

Embedded from SnagFilms.com, a site offering fiction and documentary films which are all streamable, free and legal. Includes National Geographic docs.

SnahFilms writes:

A musical-visual dialog, a story driven by lost love between youth and adulthood. The trail of becoming full at the expense of a family's love. The trouble to make the son improve on the father at the expense of both.

In layered metaphor LETTER TO BIJOU follows a young man whose father refuses to support his artistic ambitions. Broken by his own failures and sacrifices he forces his son to choose between the home and people he loves and the person he's striving to be.

All learn quickly that you can never go back. But can the past, present and future be reconciled?
